Pickfords switch Naked War to free-play

In celebration of the fact more than 100,000 turns have been made on Pickford brothers-developed strategy game Naked War, Zee-3′s decided to make the title free to play. That’s nice, isn’t it?

As of today, you’ll be able to continue your free trial forever, apparently, and existing subs now have infinite “challenge credits,” allowing them to play as many games as they like for no extra charge.

Bargain.

“We wanted to mark this landmark event in Naked War’s history by doing something to say a big ‘thank you’ to all the subscribers, players, and members of the Naked War community that have been supporting indie development, and enjoying Naked War, for the last couple of years,” said co-designer Ste Pickford.

“We also wanted to underline our continued commitment to this, our first ever indie release. When we launched, some people were nervous about joining in a game based around a subscription and server model – they didn’t know if the game would be around for long, or if the servers would stay running. Well, we’ve been running for nearly three years now, with no sign of stopping, and we’re still making changes and improvements to the game!”

Hope over here for a nose. There’s a movie of it in action after the break.

    They’re a pleasant bunch, those Pickfords. And hairy, too! It’s a win on all fronts. Providing you like nice people. With hair.
